The state of Florida, like any state in the United States, is made up of a mix of urban and suburban centers, and of industrial, commercial and residential neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, while most trips are safe, there were a total of 227,998 car accidents reported in Florida throughout 2011. The traffic crash facts from this time period reveal that 334,809 drivers were involved in traffic collisions.

Although thousands of car accidents occur in Doral, the city is widely viewed as a desirable place to live and as one of the top cities in the area. In 2008, for example, CNN Money ranked Doral as number 51 out of 100 cities in terms of lifestyle appeal and the best mix of business advantages. Its attractive features contribute to making Doral so popular, as does its convenient proximity to Miami International Airport.
Unfortunately, the proximity to the airport as well as its popularity combine to bring many inexperienced drivers to the area who don’t know where they are going or how to get around. Drivers who are lost may be more likely to read maps, be on their cell phone or otherwise focus on things other than the road … thus increasing their accident risks.
While distracted and inexperienced drivers are a menace, one of the most common dangers associated with Doral motor-vehicle accidents is intoxicated drivers. A total of 35 of the car accidents in Doral were related to alcohol in 2011 and in the greater Miami-Dade County area, 58 of the fatalities happened in accidents with drunk drivers.
